    I'm totally new to the whole mac thing, having used PCs for years. I updated my 15" Macbook pro this evening and it asked me to restart, which I did. now it's stuck on a white screen with a stop sign and the little whirling icon going round. It's also getting really hot.

    Any advice.

    Thanks!

    I just had a 2010 Mac mini do this to me after updating OS X and I let it spin for about 1/2 hour then got bored and shut it down.
    It then started up just fine and has been running for days without a problem.
    I don`t necessarily advise doing this but I didn`t seem to have any other option apart from leaving it spinning all night. :eek:
